Supply Chain Integration - Agility vs. Pain

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec., 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TPSynergy, a leader in cloud-based supply chain solutions, announced availability of their new subscription service for real-time integration of trading partners within supply chains.

As a Managed Service, the complete process of integration -- from design to maintenance -- is done on the cloud by TPSynergy's Business and Technology Expert Center.

Integrated Supply Chain – A Critical Factor in Supply Chain Success

Integrating all of the operational systems within a supply chain remains an insurmountable challenge for all but the largest organizations.

"Many companies choose not to integrate their supply chain. Instead, they operate in disconnected mode as they cannot acquire or devote staff with the right skill set," says Srini Raja, Director of TPSynergy.

Integration Tools Are Not the Answer

There are many tools and platforms on the market for Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). On-premise tools include Informatica, Oracle Fusion Middle Ware, and SAP Process Integration. There are also cloud-based solutions like Dell Boomi or MuleSoft.

However, each integration for these products requires significant effort by skilled consultants to design, develop, test, and deploy. In addition, the ongoing cost of maintaining integrations in the face of business changes is typically up to four times the initial setup cost.

TPSynergy's Supply Chain Integration as a Service (SCIaaS) takes the load off the customer by delivering supply chain agility through itsend-to-end integrated solution on the cloud.

Removing costs and complexity with SC-IaaS

TPSynergy delivers a complete integration solution by moving data seamlessly in and out of each trading partner's own operational systems. TPSynergy's integration experts shield the customer by taking care of all the elements of supply chain integration, such as:

  1. Business Process Analysis
  2. Requirements Gathering
  3. Integration Design
  4. Development of Integration
  5. Testing with Internal and External System Owners
  6. End User Training
  7. Trading Partners Onboarding
  8. System Maintenance and Enhancement

In-house or Outsourced Integration?

"Many large organizations have in-house integration platforms and dedicated teams to maintain it.  This set-up provides little strategic business value while still requiring considerable IT overhead. Instead, by partnering with a Managed Service provider like TPSynergy, companies can move their internal IT staff to more strategic projects that need to be done in-house," says David Inbar, VP of Marketing at TPSynergy.

Customer Success

TPSynergy recently rolled out its SC-IaaS to two large cosmetic manufacturing companies. By using TPSynergy, a complex supply chain integration project -- connecting contract manufacturers, raw material suppliers, and logistics providers was completed in less than 4 months. By contrast, this project would have taken more than a year if it were done in-house.
